What Our Clients Say

“Excellent Dolphin & Sunset trip”

My girlfriend and I had an excellent trip on the Mustang on the $25 dolphin and sunset cruise. Both crew members were very engaging and entertained and kept the adults and children entertained throughout. Trip included a tour round the bay following dolphins and then watching them surf the bow of a tanker coming in. Followed by more touring and then a trawl to find some amazing sea life on the way back. Well worth it and highly recommended.

“Excellent dolphin watching”

This was so much fun! We took a sunset dolphin watching tour, and saw more dolphins than I've seen anywhere else. The Captain and crew were fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone obviously knew what they were doing, as they knew exactly where the best camera shots were and where to find the dolphin. I highly recommend this fabulous boat trip to anyone going to Port Aransas. I only wish we had been there long enough to take the tour with the pirate fight!

“My whole family had a blast!”

All 9 of us ages 3-75 had a blast on the dolphin tour. We saw lots of dolphins and sea creatures, it's more than just a dolphins tour! While on board you not only see dolphins but they throw a large net out and fish and have a tub in the middle of the boat where they put the creatures caught so everyone can see and touch them. Awesome experience, we had a blast and learned a lot!
